  1. me and my brother went to check it out along with some other family members,i was 15 at the time and one of my cousins said there was a person dressed in black that had climbed one of the trees by the house,i looked up and i did see what appeared to be a man all in black hanging from the tree i got my brother who was 4 at the time and carried him running along with my cousins,when i looked back there wasnt anyone on the tree.Later that day when we got home i was talkig to my mom about it when my brother said that he had seen a man hanging from a tree and then he dissapeared so me and him and my cousins saw the same thing,since then i do believe its haunted.

  2. Back in 2005, I took some people there very late at night. Nothing happened but it was still cool to see the place up close. The original owners was a Mexican family and lost it after the 1848 American invasion (California was part of Mexico up until then).

  3. Hi,
    My Family & I Born & Raised In Soledad Mission
    There are more buildings in this area that are extremely haunted.
    Like The Old Mission School that Burned Down across New Mission School & The Old Victorian Place out @ Wraths Winery. Theres also 2 Old Labor Camps. I lived In One Of Them. Also 2 homes Where I lived out in the mission & lots of scary things experienced there. I even had Soledads Priest Go Bless 1 of the Homes.
    Los coches has its terrors & the lady in black stands in the intersection across the building almost by the entrence of bridge.

    • Yeah I have heard about the school being haunted too,when i was 15 me and my brother and cousins along with family went to see the house there was a door opened but we didnt go inside however something really weird happened that day we where by some trees and I saw my little brother who was at the time looking up and pointing to my cousins.I looked up and saw what appeared to be a man all dressed in black with a western hat on.I didn’t see his face because he was facing his back to me,I felt really uneasy and at the same time my cousins screamed and ran.I got my brother and carried him,I remember my aunt was with us and she said what and started walking fast,I could tell she got scared but didn’t want to show it.well we only ran uo to where the house was at since the rest of the family was there,I remember that I kept looking back as I ran ut there wasn’t anything on the tree.My aunt asked me what happened and i saud that we saw a man up on the tree she looked at me like if i was making it up.Later that day when we got ho,e I asked my brother what scared him,he said he saw a man dressed in black on the tree and when i aked my ither cousins they also said the same thing.I believe this place is haunted,if not them how could we explain that all of us saw the same thing but my aunt didn’t whe.she was looking at the tree too,and how could it be that when i started running I looked back right away and there was nobody.

      • I was only about 5 or 6 years old .
        I was in kindergarten @ Soledad Mission School (new building )
        And i saw a old slender light skinned Tall man. Across the st. All dressed in black as well with a hat. Yet he took it off & he was bold. Yet couldn’t make out his face. He called me over. He held a brown bag/ or pouch? In his right hand. He stood next to a tree that was next to the dirt rd that was next to the old burned down mission school.

    Haunted because Many Mexicano’s were hanged there, as testament that the Anglo saxons/ Spaniard’s were now the Owners.
    The Indigenous Natives / Mexicans were the victims of the Genocide as they were starved an Hanged.
    My Dad, born 1921 an Buelito Correa born 1899 told of those hangings. I in 1944.
    The massacre of the original Peoples is what HAUNTS LOS COCHI’S
